With Oscar season upon us and the release of eagerly anticipated blockbusters from Life of Pi to The Hobbit around the corner, CultureLabel has curated the greatest film inspired art and has been chatting to Fabien Riggall, founder of Secret Cinema.
We are delighted to introduce Stephen Wildish and his striking 'Film Alphabet' prints along with BMovie's incredible stylistic posters and Matt Needle's new film inspired collection.
This month 'going to the pictures' has a whole new meaning...
A - FULL WIDTHQ&A with Artist
When did you first begin to show a passion for art & design?
'I probably got my interest in art and design from my father, who was a cartoonist. We used to sit around the table most nights after dinner and play drawing games'.
What inspires you and how does that translate into your work?
'A lot of my work is heavily inspired by food and the other British obsession, "class"'.
What is your favourite piece in your AtoZ collection?
'My favourite film alphabet? Definitely the 80s. It was the first and supposed to be the only one, but I got carried away. For some reason I wanted to draw Marty McFly from Back to the future and it just went from there'.

Introducing Matt Needle
Tell us about yourself and your work
'My Name is Matt Needle and I am a Cardiff based designer & illustrator with an obsession for film. In 2009 I decided to combine my interests and start creating Movie Prints to sell...and I haven't looked back since'.
'I usually create prints based on films and shows I like, but every once in a while I relish the opportunity to work on the odd request or commission'.
Highlights from Matt Needle's new collection on CultureLabel
A print inspired by one of the most celebrated films in foreign cinema, cinema paradiso.
This print is inspired by the classic sci-fi horror The Fly, starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis.
'Part of an ongoing series of prints im working on based around the early films of David Cronenberg - a period in his career when he made shock body horrors/sci-fs. Videodrome is one of his weirder more iconic films'. Matt Needle
